  4. If you’re a freelance worker and you’ve suddenly found yourself in a position where you won’t be able to work for a while, you’re likely in panic mode.  It’s one reason why many people don’t take the plunge into self-employment as there’s no guaranteed pay packet and no sick pay when you’re ill.

    Don’t let that stop you though.  With some preparation then you can make sure you are covered for those quiet periods with little income, or if you get sick or injured.
